Fans of the popular TV show “Game of Thrones” should be wary, as information on the fourth episode could be leaked online due to a recent cyberattack. A report from Entertainment Weekly revealed that HBO is the latest victim of such a cyberattack.

However, it wasn’t confirmed what exact content of “Game of Thrones” is in the hands of evil-doers. Perhaps some sort of script will surface in the coming days as hackers are threatening to leak a few HBO series and data regarding the fourth episode of “GOT.”

HBO acknowledges the cyber attack

HBO has confirmed the situation and is now looking to investigate the incident with law enforcement and other agencies that specialize in cyber security.

The cable giant released a statement that said, “HBO recently experienced a cyber incident, which resulted in the compromise of proprietary information.” HBO added, “Data protection is a top priority at HBO,” according to Entertainment Weekly.

Game of Thrones” contains HBO’s most highly-guarded secrets from their lineup of shows. So much so that Richard Plepler, HBO’s chairman, and CEO, claims that he and his talented team are working “round the clock” to protect those secrets.

In addition to “Game of Thrones,” hackers also claim that they will leak episodes of other HBO shows, “Room 104” and “Ballers.” The company has not yet confirmed whether those episodes and “GOT” material have already been leaked.

Hackers have set their eyes on Hollywood

The Hackers reportedly sent an email to reporters, claiming they have successfully breached HBO’s system. They also claimed that they were able to gain 1.5 terabytes of data from the cable television network. Moreover, the hackers promised that more leaks will be coming soon.

This is not the first time Hollywood has suffered this kind of attack. Netflix’s cyber security was also breached in April and perpetrators behind it threatened to leak episodes of the TV series “Orange is the New Black” ahead of its summer comeback.

Perhaps the biggest cyber security breach in Hollywood happened in 2014, where Sony was a victim of hackers that were able to obtain 100 terabytes of data which was uploaded online.

The first four episode of “Game of Thrones” season five were leaked online when review DVDs were sent to the press. In fact, images of Jon Snow’s death circulated the internet even before the episode aired. This is why HBO to stopped sending out early footage of “GOT.”
